US to LH F tight connection in DFW

Hello everyone,

Hopping over from the UA forum to see if anyone could provide any friendly advice on my upcoming trip.

I am flying US F CLT-DFW (US893- gets in at 3.08pm) and connecting onto LH 439 (leaves at 4.20pm) to FRA in F.

Now, I understand that I would be arriving into E terminal and leaving out of D. I'm not particularly familiar with DFW so I'm wondering if this connection is too tight to make the flight (assuming I land on time).

Would I have to get out of Terminal E and clear security again to get to Terminal D? Is there any kind of fast transfer for F passengers on tight connections?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you so much

No need to reclear security at DFW. All the terminals are connected airside by the Skylink train. Shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to go between any gate in the airport. Don't dally but this connection shouldn't be an issue.

Awesome, really good news. I guess I shouldn't stress at all then!

As an AA flyer I can tell you this should be fine, barring any delays on you inbound.

Mod action: moving this over to the Flyertalk Texas forum, where this should get greater visibility.

Thanks!

No problem with connection. I would just be a little upset that I could not spend time in the LH First lounge.

I'm not as worried about that since the only option is a contract lounge and not a proper FC one. I will have plenty of time to enjoy the FCT in FRA

Just take the Skylink train from one end to the other.

Original post reflected terminal from IAH, now deleted.

I think you misread something. US uses Terminal E at DFW.

OOOOPS, you are right of course, for some reason I was thinking IAH

Altering post accordingly

But either way, still an easy connection. And no A380 like ex IAH.
